Grange Farm Campsite: Caravan and motorhome area

General

  • Just over an hour's drive from London and 20 minutes from Colchester
  • A 10-minute drive from the coast at Clacton and Frinton-on-Sea
  • Within easy walking distance of the local village's pubs and takeaways

Don’t get too engrossed in your book on the train if you’re farming yourself and family out to this Essex coast site from London: you’ll be there in a jiffy.

An hour and 15 minutes from Liverpool Street lands you at Thorpe-le-Soken, from where it's a minuscule quarter of a mile along a rural footpath to the acreage at Grange Farm Campsite. Arriving from elsewhere? The farm is at the end of the A133 from Colchester (20 minutes away by car), although personally you might like to get someone else to drive so you can get on with your holiday reading…

Although it’s within 10 minutes’ drive of the coast at Clacton, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze, the vibe at popular Grange Farm is pretty peaceful, set deep in Essex countryside with room galore for pitches. Horse riding is a canterable mile away; and tennis courts, a golf course and a heated indoor pool four miles away – just in case you don’t fancy braving Essex sea waters.

Walkies from Thorpe-le-Soken through the rural surroundings include ones to the coast, to Landermere, to Beaumont Quay, to Holland Haven Country Park, to the village fish and chip shop… Speaking of fish and chips (always), a chippy, takeaways, three restaurants, three pubs, a petrol station and a food shop are in the village; all three pubs dish up nosh.

Facilities on site – showers, toilets and chemical disposal point – are basic but kept very clean. There’s no laundry block, but a launderette is three miles away.

Please note

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Group bookings of 5 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Bookings must not consist of more than 1 different households.

    Lovely quiet campsite, very friendly owners and warden :) Approx 10 min stroll into Thorpe Le Soken which has a Tesco Express and a good choice of pubs/eateries. The village also has regular bus and train services to the coastal resorts and also inland if you don't want to drive.

    We loved staying here and would totally recommend it if you are looking to get away from it all and just chill :)

Local attractions

Birdwatching, beaches, seaside towns, coastal constitutions and the city of Colchester are all close to hand from Grange Farm Campsite – if you should tire of these (tsk), Orford and the Suffolk Heritage Coast await a little further north.

The sands of Holland-on-Sea, four miles from the farm, are quieter than the main Essex seaside towns of Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea: like most of the surrounding countryside, this is birdwatching land to have twitchers all of a-flutter.

Holland Haven Country Park, between Clacton and Frinton, covers over 100 acres of coastal birdwatching landscape to spy migrant birds, sandpipers, warblers and the like; elsewhere, several nature reserves include Great Holland Pits, Soken Woods, The Naze at Walton-on-the-Naze, Howlands Marsh at St Osyth and the RSPB Stour Estuary reserve at Wrabness.

Seaside transport of a different kind is available at the Southend Cliff Railway – yep, going upwards – and the hair-raising adventures and rollercoaster rides of Adventure Island, with free entry and a Jumping Jolly Rodgers ride. Aaarrr.
